Venous Thromboembolism Prevention Clinical Care Standard

The Venous Thromboembolism Prevention Clinical Care Standard has been developed by ACSQHC (the Commission) to support clinicians and health services implement the delivery of high-quality care to prevent venous thromboembolism (VTE) acquired in hospital and following hospital discharge.

The Commission has written to Health Care providers encouraging a review of current practices against the Standard – click here to view this correspondence.

This is of particular relevance given a continued incidence of hospital-acquired VTE, often in circumstances where the Standard has not been followed
